This snippet demonstrates how to obtain the number of available sensors on your device (for example, two on the Nokia N95 8GB: accelerometer sensor and rotation sensor).

Note: In order to use the code, you need to install the sensor plugin for your SDK.

MMP file

The following libraries are required:

LIBRARY RRSensorApi.lib

Source file

#include <RRSensorApi.h>
RArray<TRRSensorInfo> sensorList;
// Retrieve list of available sensors
// Get number of sensors available
TInt sensorCount = sensorList.Count();
CleanupStack::PopAndDestroy(); // sensorList


The number of available sensors is obtained.
